Do Brockport students take constant trips to Canada to see the falls? Do they go there to for a mini vacation to get away from their studies? Or do they go there because the drinking age is 19? It seems like many students take the hour trip to Canada from Brockport for a little wine dining.
A survey shows that Canada is making quite a profit off of alchohol. The stats show the truth behind why so many college students head up that way.
By the end of March 2007, the total amount of beer and wine sales was $18 billion. There were 2.3 million liters of beer purchased in that year as well. Whiskey, Scotch, and Bourbon are among the most popular liquors purchased in 2007.
A single Canadian, who drinks ovbiously, spent an average of $667 on alcohol alone!
Even though we do not live in Canada, we are near it. And as I said before, many students take the trip up there just to drink. This blog is not trying to persuade you to go to Canada to drink. It is simply a way of showing how much alcohol is truly consumed. There is more in Canada than drinking. But just remember, if you do decide to take a trip up there, make sure you have your birth certificate!
